Value for money does not come easy in SF but this trip was everything we wished for and more. We booked quickly and easily through the website. We did this as soon as the tickets came on sale as we visited in the height of summer - it would not have been possible to visit Alcatraz if we had waited until we were in SF. Additionally we booked the night tour. I believe this sold out a good month before we visited. The night tour gives the option of returning at 8.40 or 9.25. Most of the group waited until the latter pick up and were rewarded with pitch black skies and SFs stunning lights towards the end of the evening. The boat crossing was quick and had a snack bar. Once on the island things could be done in any order once we had been set up with the audio tour. This tour was narrated by ex prisoners and guards which added to its impact. Overall, a really good way to spend the evening.
